I could not believe how gorgeous these leaves were.  Real, beautiful, purple fall leaves! 

It probably looked a bit strange when I pulled up to the curb, opened the door and proceeded to pick through the leaves on the ground, pulling a handful of the prettiest ones into the car before driving away.  Many of the things photographers do look strange.  But wow!  These are just too cool!  Maybe next time I can get some fresher ones and press them.  What do people do with pressed leaves?  There must be some artsy thing you can do with them.
